Dear, Karen. Thank you for bringing to life such a beautiful story. As the children did, I wave my handkerchief to you. You made my life a little better. Thank you so much.

FIVE STARS to Karen Savage, for the best, most consistent, and lovely reading of an entire Librivox book. Cannot praise enough. Not once did I want to throw the CD across the room, thanks to some abominably read of some chapter, like some of the other Librivox books, where I missed a good part of the story because of it.

Karen, you are a jewel! Please don't stop narrating! :)

Subject: First class reading
Thank you for such a grand recording of this classic story.

Don't suppose I'm the first to notice a similarity between this tale and the Dreyfus affair. Nesbit went to school in France so I'm thinking that she would have followed the case closely.

Loved it. Well read AND brilliant story. It reminded me of the lessons I learned as a kid to be nice and speak kindly to one another. It's been a long long time since I heard those lessons repeated in any entertainment medium. Today we're bombarded by violence, anger, and unceasing rudeness. This story was a pleasant refresher and I put the mp3 speakers on the dining table so my son could hear as he played his computer games. He didn't mind it either :)

The reading is superb,one of the best in the series. The story of a family who something tragic happens to and the strength of how they pull together and still find excitement and a lust for life. This is a most captivating tale and will touch the heats of all that listen. Don't miss this story!
